Book & 2 CDs. Hungarian, also known as Magyar, is a Uralic language unrelated to the other, primarily Indo-European, languages of central Europe. It has therefore always been of great interest to linguists, who trace the beginning of the Hungarian language to 1000 BC. Today it is spoken by about 9 million natives of Hungary, as well as by 4 million Hungarian speakers in 7 neighbouring countries, Canada and the US "Beginner's Hungarian" provides an introduction to conversational Hungarian for students, travellers and business people. It contains 10 clear language lessons centred around common situations, such as going through customs, checking into a hotel, dining out, accepting invitations and using local transportation. Each lesson includes dialogues, grammar points, vocabulary lists and exercises, with an emphasis on solid fundamental knowledge. The audio CDs accompanying the lessons provide correct pronunciation in easy-to-follow dialogues, with pauses for repetition by the student. The book also contains information on the culture, geography, history, politics and arts of Hungary, advice on everyday life, such as tips on doing business in Hungary, grocery shopping, getting a taxi, buying food anti navigating restaurant menus, and a glossary of words and useful phrases.
